You are the one who claimed, without any type of evidence to back it up, that Union could be a reason that MO infrastructure needs help. I countered that claim by citing studies that show union construction sites are overall safer, therefore less expensive, therefore unions are not a reason for poorly funded state infrastructure.
The reason I don't bother arguing with you is because you drift all over the place from one facet of the topic to another apparently without realizing it (see BEP's post 81), because you cut and paste long-form propaganda that's boring to read through trying to find the relevant point if it even has one, and because you constantly create strawman arguments even though I don't think you realize you're doing it.

For example, the post I just quoted:

1. You say I made a claim without evidence. Reality: I asked a question and asked if you had ever investigated the possibiity.

2. The "claim" involved the impact of unions on the quality, cost, and speed of infrastructure construction (it was following on from the good, fast, and cheap discussion that led to it). What was your response? Worker safety!! WTF? That had virtually nothing to do with the previous line of discussion, but you see it as a rebuttal to a claim that was never made. Your game of whack-a-mole propaganda is exhausting and I'm bored with it.
